A Short Greeting


MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Ha! I know it’s just the first day of the ninth month but for us Filipinos, it’s the first signal that Christmas is just around the corner. I’ve written here exactly a year ago about our unique habit of celebrating Christmas right on the very day “Ber” hits our calendars. So, allow me to be one of the first persons to greet you my dearest friends.

I also would want to take this opportunity to apologize to you guys. Been productive lately with tons of school work and Facebook-ing (Vajarl/JCCaduldulan, I know you feel with me. hehe), cutting my precious time posting blog-worthy entries and visiting your wonderful blogs my dear friends. Please bear with me. Also, please pray for yours truly to graduate on time! School’s a extremely fun but it’s so damn suffocating. Good thing there’s Christmas. Whoopee!

Aren’t you guys excited? Don’t ask me because it’s sure obvious. Spread the love!

is it just me or is time passing by faster these days? albert einstein said time is not absolute. he's right. it goes faster or slower depending on your point of reference. its relative... now, its already christmas [again]... i wonder what that says about me... i mean, whats my "point of reference"? Merry Christmas to you too..

Badong said...

PMM: pareho lang tayo ng iniisip. ang bilis na ng panahon! tandang-tanda ko pa nga yung mga nangyari nung nakaraang pasko e. tapos eto pasko na naman!

Badong said...

LORD CM: sayo rin Lord (gets?)! hehe

SOLACE: true! I'm in a festive mood right now kahit na kagagaling ko lang ng sakit.

SCOFIELD JR. said...

elmot l PinoySoundingBoard said...

Uy, pasko na, malapit na 13th month pay!!! Wahahhaha!

jccaduldulan said...

Natats naman ako sa special mention. Haha. Although Christmas is against my views, I enjoy the season. It's not like people actually think about Jesus or his birth, I know people enjoy Christmas because people seem happier, kinder, and more generous at these times. The joy people experience by spending hard earned money. Ahhh, I feel poverty already.

Badong said...

ELMOT: sana may 13th month din ang mga studyante! haha

JC: ayan na, lumabas na naman ang pagka-radikal mo. hehe. let's be happy!

isladenebz said...

I laughed when I saw Santa in your post. Nakakamiss ang Pasko sa Pinas. And yes, just last night, I played a Christmas carol dahil pakiramdam ko Christmas na (dahil ER-month na!)!

You'll be in my prayers. You'll graduate, I know.

Badong said...

GEGE: sayo rin!

NEBZ: haha! salamat po!

I am Xprosaic said...

ilang Christmas narin ang nagdaan na hindi ko naramdaman ang diwa nito... gayunpaman, masaya ako tuwing may nakikilala ako na masaya dahil dito.
looking forward to better Christmas this year!

Ang late ko naman mag react. Haha. Nakarinig na pala ko sa radyo (habang nasa fx) ng Christmas Song. Sinasabayan ko na yung kanta nung bigla ko nalang narealize na Christmas song yun, nung malapit na mabanggit yung line na 'Let's sing Merry Christmas and a happy holiday' Haha. Ang aga talaga ng pasko dito.

jan geronimo said...

Bago mag-greet ng Merry Christmas, greet muna ko ng Happy Birthday.

Oo na, bukas pa, sabi nga sa Facebook bukas pa eh. Alam ko kaya un.

Kasi parang fiesta rin yan eh. May bisperas celebration. That's today. Iba pa un bukas.

Happy birthday, Joel. Playing safe lang ako baka makalimutan ko eh. Alam mo na naman mga lolo. :)
